Bay of Fires Walk

A 3 day guided Pack Free walk

This 3-day walk has been designed for those looking for a Pack Free walk of the Bay of Fires. Avoid carrying your clothes or a heavy pack and walk with as little as your camera, water and lunch each day. Situated on the east coast of Tasmania, this magical and remote landscape showcases pure white perfect beaches, vivid orange granite boulders and a ribbon of sapphire and emerald seas. The Bay of Fires is a truly stunning destination and a photographer’s paradise.

Pirate Coves, azure seas and stunning orange landscapes

A Pack Free Walk
One of the biggest drawcards of this walk is that our guests won’t be asked to carry their clothes or overnight bags for the entire walk. This is a big advantage in you’ll avoid carrying an additional 8kg or more on your back every day. With Life’s An Adventure, carry as little as your water, camera and lunch.

2 nights in our charming Waterfront Beach Shack
Our walking experience spends 2 nights in our waterfront beach shack. With only a short 15 minute transfer from the end of the trail on day 1 and the ability to walk into the beach shack on day 2, you’ll find this charming accommodation with its beach decor and lovely Ansons Bay views, the perfect place to put your feet up after a day’s walk.

The Wow Factor
On every tour, we add an additional Wow Factor to make your journey truly inspirational. On the morning of day 3 before your walk, enjoy a superb wilderness cruise from Binalong Bay exploring the Bay of Fires from the water. During the journey we will visit a delightful Seal Colony, to see the seals frolicking in the water or sunning themselves on the large boulders. If we are lucky, we may even meet some playful dolphins or whales along the way.

Personalised Tours
Our group sizes are small and intimate with a maximum of 11 people, we find this delivers a more personal service, a greater social environment and has less impact on the environment.

Our Guides
Our guides are loved for their ability to go above and beyond. We call them our CEOs – Chief Experience Officers and it’s their job to ensure your tour exceeds your expectations. For example, our chief guides Glenn and Janaya are a winning combination providing the best in customer service. Glenn has a wealth of knowledge on the Bay of Fires, which enables him to make the landscape come to life. Add to this, his wonderful sense of humour and Janaya’s ‘Can Do’ attitude and you know you will be in good hands.

Almost 100% Local Tasmanian Produce and Wine
Tasmania is famous for its superb local produce, from its delicious cheeses to its wide selection of wines. An important element of your walking experience with Life’s an Adventure is the high-quality local food we provide each day. You’ll always find an abundance of food and options available. Glenn & Janaya have put an inspired Tasmanian menu together including wonderful Scottsdale Pork with Peach and Chardonnay sauce, Pear and Walnut Salad, local Salmon, Trevally and so much more. It wouldn’t be a meal without wine, and we have an array of Ninth Island white and reds, as well as boutique Tasmanian beers to enjoy during dinner as well.

Genuinely all-inclusive
Our walking tours are all genuinely all-inclusive and once you pay for your tour there are no hidden extras. During your evening meals, you won’t need to put your hand in your pocket to pay for wine or beer as this is included in the price of the tour. We won’t even ask you to pay additional credit card fees when booking.

3 day walk Bay of Fires -Package details

One of the main reasons why we returned to the Company was the quality of the guiding. Barry is a consummate professional, always helpful and knowledgable. The meals were excellent - this has yet again impressed us. After a great days walking it was wonderful to return to cold drinks and excellent nibbles, followed by a superbly cooked dinner. Beachshack was excellent - A wonderful convivial place with everything we needed to enjoy the company of our new fellow trippers. A four-star lodge just would not have been the same.

Thought Barry - was a superb guide - really took the time to explain what we were seeing, and also made sure the group was held together and not walking too far apart from each other. The Beach Shack was fabulous. Food was great - well cooked and presented and a great range of variety. Very fresh. Loved the wines and the nibbles on returning after a day walking. Everything was to and above my expectation.

Barry was the perfect mix of enthusiastic, knowledgeable and quirky. Susan was great as a host and an amazing chef. Heaps and heaps of delicious food with plenty of options. Especially impressed with the accommodation of my need for a gluten-free diet. Fantastic. Beachshack was excellent. I think the way you have pitched it is perfect. You play down expectations a bit and then over deliver. Will recommend

Our guide; Barry was so full of local and interesting knowledge. Although we didn't call him Barry much; was Bob, Bazza etc. He was so lovely. The local produce was awesome and all our meals were prepared beautifully. We were really impressed with your tour; we will be looking for a new location with you next year.
